How much Sagittarius do you have?

If your Sun sign is Sagittarius, it is quite probable that you think "I see Sagittarius in me", as Sagittarius' motto is "I see". However, there may be some Sagittarius in you even if your natal Sun is not in that sign.

The position of the Sun describes our core, our essence (it is not a coincidence that the Sun's symbol is a circle with a dot in the centre!). Therefore, a person born when the Sun was in Sagittarius can identify with the Archer attributes in a philosophical and spontaneous manner ... philosophy and spontaneity are certainly very Sagittarian! However, every person is a mosaic of energies and each astrological factor represents various facets of our configuration; that is why the Sagittarius energy can be part of your potential at a different level from the Sun. Some people may have several astrology points in Sagittarius, while others just have a few or none in this sign.

I will describe in broad brushstrokes what Sagittarius can mean when it manifests through some astrological variables so you may have an idea.

If your Ascendant is Sagittarius (a.k.a. Rising sign), you will recognize certain level of optimism and exploratory spirit in you as far as the way you begin your activities is concerned. In addition, you will tend to present yourself to the world with joviality and joy.

The Moon can be in any sign of the Zodiac independently of the Sun's position at birth. Consequently, your emotional style may have the spontaneity so characteristic of Sagittarius, even if, for example, you are a compassionate Pisces.

If your Sun sign is Scorpio, Sagittarius or Capricorn, then it is possible that Mercury was in Sagittarius when you were born and this will grant you a positive mind as well as a very sincere communication style (for example, a person with the Sun in Scorpio can be very reserved, but he/she will tend to speak his/her mind if Mercury is in Sagittarius). Likewise, if your Sun sign is Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn or Aquarius, it is probable that Venus is in Sagittarius in your birth chart, which will influence you to value freedom a lot in your personal relationships, even if you have a rather conservative essence (e.g. a Sun in Capricorn).

The planet Mars can manifest in your case through Sagittarius no matter what your Sun sign is and if so, your physical energy can reach high levels (especially for sports) and your need to reaffirm yourself can be manifested through adventures and independent enterprises. Analogously, Jupiter can be in Sagittarius in your natal chart independently of your Sun sign, which will express enjoyment of expansive activities (outdoor, travels, exploration, etc.) and truly generous authority exertion at various levels.

If Saturn is in the sign of the Archer in your birth chart, you will try to assume responsibilities in an independent manner with no strings attached and you will acquire experience through activities that involve risk and/or openness to the new.

If you belong to the generation of people born under Uranus in Sagittarius, you will promote changes as a way to broaden your horizons and find the truth.

The essence of Sagittarius is to widen the horizons through an optimistic quest, which can be expressed through any of the areas referred above and at different levels, both positive and not so evolutionary, depending on your birth chart as a whole and your free will.

You can make good use of the best Sagittarius can give you in the area where you have received that energy, but it will all depend on the conscious choices you make. The enthusiasm for expanding the perspectives can lead to dangerous exaggerations, but it can also promote the openness required to grow guided by the Truth.
